My husband and I stayed in the Kennedy Room for two nights. It is a small, cozy space and great for a weekend spent doing things outside. The room and bathroom are a little stuffy, but that is the only slightly negative thing to note. The location is very good (though busy at rush hour on weeknights of course), breakfast... More

Thanks so much guys! It was great to have you stay. The one negative note you mentioned: did you have trouble operating the A/C? You have your own climate control in each room, so you can actually keep the room just as cool or warm (and breezy or stuffy) as you like! Too bad, if you'd told us at breakfast... More

We stayed in the Kennedy room for three nights and it was comfortable and quiet. There is an air conditioner which kep the room cool and was remarkably quiet, so we had no problem running it at night. Breakfast waffles and granola were both very good. Kipp was an excellent host. We would definitely return.

Hi guys, thanks so much for your supportive response! We're very glad that you were comfortable and enjoyed the breakfasts. The air conditioner is state of the art so yes, it should do the trick for sound sleeping conditions! More

After a couple of working days in NYC, spending the nights at a boutique hotel near Times' square, it felt like coming home returning for my second visit at the Canal Park Inn for vacation with my son. The Batby Suite was just as cosy as I remembered: spatious, quiet, renovated with piety, yet with all modern comfort, and spotlessley... More

I had no idea that such a great place existed in Manhattan! The owner was very knowledgeable of the area, and provided a very filling and nutritious breakfast to get your day started! Located near the heart of Soho, and within walking distance of downtown Manhattan, this is perfect for the avid sightseer on foot. Not a big walking tourist?... More

My family of 5 (two adults and three teens) stayed at the Canal Park Inn for 4 nights and I cannot say enough great things about our stay!

Hi Victoria, thanks so much for the review! I was sad I never got to hear from you how the West Village escapades went: did you make it to Magnolia? Which spot did you pick for lunch?

We went to NYC for a three day getaway of theater and dinning and discovered a charming, if somewhat funky, 4 bedroom bed and breakfast. The stairs are steep so this is not for the infirm but the location is great (short walk to the Hudson River Park and the High Line) the innkeeper charming, and the room quite comfortable.... More

My wife & I stayed 3 nights May 2013. Excellent Tribeca/Soho location. Close to promenade on the Hudson River, subway stops, Chinatown, Nolita and little Italy.

I really liked this father/daughter effort. They're both so lovely and eager to accommodate from the moment you call Sara feels like an old friend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled on the border of Soho and Tribeca, our landmarked 1826 Canal House is ideally situated for experiencing the best New York has to offer—and still having a quiet place to call home at the end of the day. Surrounded by 5-star restaurants and a block away from the landscaped parks, open grass, tennis courts, and stunning sunsets at the Hudson River Park, we strike a perfect balance between nature and culture.The Osborne’s have owned 508 Canal Street since 1980. In this building, they raised their daughter, providing the building with family history built into the very walls. (Behind a renovation wall on the top floor of the building is hidden a mural painted by children at a particularly creative third birthday party.) The beds and several end tables in the Inn were built by Kipp Osborne, coming from the days when he and his wife, Margot, were furniture makers in Soho and Tribeca. ... more   less
